The way you feel is mostly determined by how you think. However tempting it is to project responsibility for your emotional reactions outward, it only takes you further away from peace. It increases your suffering and causes feelings of powerlessness, because you have little control over what¬†happens on the outside.¬†Others may be the catalyst for feelings that arise, but not the cause. When you learn to control your thinking and the stories you weave, you begin to see where peace and joy originate…

Within.
